On the team selection, Tuchel said: "You either trust or don't trust. Malang was strong in the cup game, Trevoh in every game we play him and Andreas is a strong player for us. We need height and physicality so I hope that Ruben and N'Golo collect second and third balls."

He added: "After national break, I like to have players on the pitch who I have feelings for."
